A Bit Distressed......

Not quite sure who is more distressed,the card or me.I think I went a bit OTT and think it looks a bit manky looking. (Scottish for dirty).However it's done now and so will have to do.It was a rush job as usual.I had two Mother's Day cards to make.The other I finished tonight but haven't been able to take a pic as it's too dark now.
The picture was on a disc with loads of vintage images I got from my friend.I printed it out onto Letraset Safmat and stuck onto cream cardstock,then distressed it with my BG Precision Toolkit.I'm quite pleased with the result ,as I'd had the Safmat for about a year and never used it.The card is another 8x8 seeing as it's for a special occasion.

  2. What a beautiful card, love the distressing. It would be great for a mother who is old enough to remember the days when most of our photographs were either sepia or B&W :o)
